A hybrid vehicle uses two or more distinct types of power.
A petroleum-electric hybrid most commonly uses internal combustion engines (using a variety of fuels, generally gasoline or Diesel engines) and electric motors to power the vehicle. The energy is stored in the fuel of the internal combustion engine and an electric battery set.
A hybrid-electric car runs on both petrol and electricity concurrently. On average, fuel consumption for hybrid-electric cars are lesser than regular petrol cars. Naturally, it is also more environmentally-friendly too!
You also get a host of benefits when you buy a hybrid-electric car in Singapore too:
